In a press meet organized by the Press Organization Nepal, Rupandehi chapter here today, Minister Banskota shared that the republic achieved through great struggle and sacrifice could not be toppled down easily.
He said, “Though different sectors and groups are active to ruin the system, it will not topple down easily.” On another note, he said that the government only wants to manage the media not to control it.
